Carrier branding is damned annoying.
Having seen the reviews on here recently, I wanted to have a look at the various HTC phones to see what they were like. I was curious about the keyboard on the Touch Pro, for example (as a clue to whether the Touch Pro 2's keyboard would be any good). I made the mistake of going into an O2 store and spending forever trying to translate between their own branding names and the HTC versions. If one set were numerical and the other "brand named" I wouldn't mind, but there were two completely arbitrary sets of product names - and the HTC one, if anything, made more sense.
This makes comparing the same phone between different carriers deeply annoying. I've no idea why the carriers think that offering any custom feature set is a good idea. Given the choice of an Orange branded arbitrary phone, or being told that if I got a T68i on Orange then line 2 would work (back in the day), I'd have taken the latter as the better way to push the USPs of the network. I used to spend far too much time printing out the official manufacturers' manuals too, since the network branded ones were usually messed up. (P800 and Orange, I'm looking at you.)
So long as they don't try to push another Toshiba phone on me unexpectedly, I suppose I should be grateful. (I went out of my way to buy a G900, and learnt too late. Over the weekend I discovered that the camera - in addition to crashing the phone if used to photograph the sky - also crashes the phone if used to take pictures of bluebells. I suspect it doesn't like blue. It was fine with the interior of my car...)
